CfP: International Hybrid Conference- Contemporary Trends in Public International Law at CUSAT [Feb 23-24; Hybrid]: Submit by Feb 16


About School of Legal Studies

One of the oldest law schools in India, School of Legal Studies was established in the year 1962 as a part of Kerala University offering post graduate courses and research in law. 

The Law School joined the folds of University of Cochin, in the year 1971, which was later reorganized and renamed as Cochin University of Science and Technology in 1986 for the promotion of graduate, post-graduate studies and advanced research in various fields.

About the Conference

The ongoing Russia-Ukraine war and the Israel-Palestine war sought to throw wind at all the principles of international Law. And the international commitment the countries undertook. In this context, the question is, has International Law become more relevant, or irrelevant? The Two-Day International Hybrid Conference on Contemporary Trends in Public International Law tries to explore this very relevant question, and allied matters.
